ESSEX Police led a safety operation during which a Jet2.com flight from Dalaman to Manchester was diverted to Stansted this evening, Wednesday 12 October.
Shortly before 9pm, we received a report of a potential threat on board the flight. It was escorted to Stansted Airport, where it landed safely and was parked away from the main passenger terminal.
The runway was closed for a short time while enquiries were carried out.
Officers were then able to establish there was no threat on board.
Onward travel was then organised for the passengers and the runway was re-opened.
